Is it safe to drive your Nissan Rogue with the check engine light on?

This question is not extraordinarily classic because it all depends on the severity of the issue. If the cause is a minor issue, such as a loose gas cap, it should be safe to drive. This is generally indicated by a steady glow of the check engine light. If you notice a variety in the performance of the vehicle, it could be an indication of a more colossal problem. If the check engine light is twinkling, this means that there is a colossal issue and it is recommended to service your Nissan Rogue immediately.

What could cause the check engine light to come on in a Nissan Rogue?

When your check engine light comes on, this could be as simple as tightening or replacing your gas cap. Likewise, the check engine light could also be a warning of a serious problem that could cause serious damage to your engine and come with a hefty repair bill. Depending on your make and model, the check engine light will illuminate or blink. A steady glow typically means something less serious but a flashing check engine light indicates that your vehicle’s engine is in serious trouble and service is needed immediately. If your check engine light is flashing in your Nissan Rogue, we highly recommend not to drive the vehicle and schedule Nissan service today. Below is a list of the most common reasons your check engine light can come on:

  • One of the most natural and plentiful cause is that your Nissan Rogue gas cap is loose, damaged or missing. The gas cap for your Nissan Rogue serves multiple purposes. It prevents gas fumes from being released when you aren’t driving, it seals the fuel system and helps maintain pressure within the fuel tank. What happens if you have a bad fuel cap? If your gas cap is old or has a ruptured seal, you can lose fuel through evaporation which will result in more trips to the pump. Luckily, to replace a gas cap isn’t expensive. If your check engine light turns on immediately after you put gas in your Nissan Rogue, first thing you should check is to make hopeful the cap isn’t loose — or that it’s still on your car’s roof or at the fuel pump.
  • Your catalytic converter is bad or going bad. The catalytic converter is a part of your Nissan Rogue’s exhaust system. The catalytic converter’s function is to turn the carbon monoxide created by the combustion process into carbon dioxide. A damaged catalytic converter is usually caused by neglected maintenance, which is why Nalley Nissan of Cumming offers a complimentary multi-point inspection with every Nissan service. If you have an issue with your catalytic converter and don’t get it repaired, your Nissan Rogue will not pass an emissions test, show a lack of engine performance and will negatively affect your fuel economy. Your car may run at a higher temperature, too, which can cause substitute problems from overheating.
  • Your mass airflow sensor (known as MAF) needs to be replaced. The mass airflow sensor in your Nissan Rogue is what determines how much fuel is essential to run your engine efficiently by measuring the amount of air entering the engine. As a part of the engine management system, the mass airflow sensor helps adjust to clear changes, like altitude. If your Nissan Rogue is having trouble starting, idling rough or has a fast change in the position of the throttle pedal, this could be a sign of a bad mass airflow sensor.
  • So what happens if I don’t replace your O2 sensor? A faulty sensor can not only affect your miles per gallon, but it can cause damage to your catalytic converter and your Nissan Rogue’s spark plugs. The O2 sensor sends data to the vehicle’s onboard computer to opt for the decent mixture of air and fuel that enters the cylinders in your engine. A bad O2 sensor can also cause a car to fail an emissions test.
  • The battery is scanty or dead. The battery in your Nissan Rogue is every necessary. Without a car battery, your car won’t start, light up the road ahead, play the radio or charge your phone. Today’s car batteries last much longer than they did a few decades ago, and they don’t really require maintenance. The price of a new one depends on the type of Nissan you drive, but check our present service coupons and specials.
  • Your Nissan Rogue has a vacuum leak. Every Nissan Rogue has a vacuum system that performs a wide mixture of functions. The vacuum system also helps lower harmful emissions by routing the fumes as gasoline evaporates through the engine. If you notice that your RPM is high in idle or randomly surges, a vacuum leak could be the cause. Over time, vacuum hoses can bare out and crack, immensely if they’re exposed to important heat or extreme chilly.
  • Your O2 Sensor (Oxygen Sensor) needs to be replaced. The Oxygen sensor, known as the O2 sensor, measures the amount of oxygen in your exhaust system. If there is excess oxygen in your exhaust system, fuel burns faster and your vehicle will be fewer dominant when it comes to fuel economy.
  • Issues with any aftermarket items. An aftermarket alarm, exhaust or substitute item can wreak havoc on your Nissan Rogue if it’s not installed appropriately. These aftermarket components and accessories can discharge the battery, trigger the check engine light, or even prohibit the vehicle from starting. If these issues sound accepted, bring your Rogue to Nissan and have our department of certified mechanics ensure that your aftermarket items were installed well and aren’t causing any issue. Getting accessories, immensely aftermarket parts and accessories, or using OEM components first place might cost a tiny bit more but could save you money from having to get poor work and damage caused by poor installation work corrected.
  • New Spark Plugs or Plug Wires are essential for your Nissan Rogue. The spark plugs are the part of your engine that ignites the air/fuel mixture in the combustion chamber of your vehicle. This explosion is what moves the pistons and makes the engine run. The spark plug wires deliver the spark from the ignition coil to the spark plugs. If your spark plugs or spark plug wires are bad or old, you will experience poor performance and reduced power. In some extreme cases, your engine will have trouble starting or continuing to run. Worn spark plugs and plug wires can cause clogged catalytic converter or damage to ignition coils and O2 sensors, dominant to more expensive repairs.

Many Emergency Braking Lawsuits Have Been filed

A series of emergency braking class action lawsuits have been filed regarding this faulty radar system.

The lawsuit includes all former and current owners / lessees of model years 2015 – 2019 Nissan Altima, Armada, Leaf, Maxima, Murano, Rogue, Rogue Sport, Sentra and Pathfinder.

David Turner v Nissan North America, Inc.

This lawsuit filed in Tennessee alleges that the safety braking system in 2017-2019 Nissan vehicles equipped with the AEB system malfunctions suddenly and unexpectedly.  Instead of providing protection to drivers, the lawsuit alleges that the system creates perfect conditions for rear-end and side collisions.

The lawsuits allege that the Nissan dealerships were issued technical service bulletins concerning the AEB malfunctions and that as a result, Nissan knows about the problems with the automatic emergency braking systems.
